For doubts and valleys: You are more.

We forget.
That we are more.
More than we are told,
treated and defined.

We are brighter,
lighter,
bolder, wider
in our capacities,
with more fire to be ignited,
more vision to be seen,
more texture felt
and complexity, flavor, depth
to be uncovered.

Let your cages and wall sharpen
your vision
to see past the iron bars,
focus.

Do not accept lazy or timid.
Let it tend to intention
and action. Breathe.

When the winds shake
and the skies drip,
the candles stay lit.
Look. Do not forget.

You are more.
